No one can ever accuse Gilbert Esquivel of not having a hearty sense of humor about the ups and downs of life as a Latino in modern America. With high energy and powerful versatility, he simultaneously celebrates and pokes good-natured fun at Latin-American culture and community. Esquivel enlightens his spirited live audience as to the differences between Mexicans and "Mezkins" (it has nothing to do with nationality), the truth about "Crackhead Barbie," and closes out with a rousing rendition of the "Ghetto National Anthem." Esquivel ultimately wins us over with well-rendered dialects and the delivery of sharp-witted punch lines--skills that many young comedians today simply don't have. R.A.P.
